Liveblogging Lexus at SEMA

Live Blogging from SEMA

The SEMA Show opens today, and I’m here in Las Vegas to cover all the Lexus announcements, and there’s going to be plenty — the next-generation GS F Sport package, the Five Axis Project GS, VIP Auto Salon’s hyper IS-C & Joe Bacal’s new LX Racer will all debut today at the Lexus display.

I’m getting all packed and ready to head over, and will liveblogging throughout the day. Let’s get started!
